78 Fence

I know a guy. A guy you can pay to protect you. Call him, give him my name.

Sound shady? Don't worry, it's not! But the fence industry in DFW certainly can be!! In our new home we decided to tear down the back run of our fence and build a power gate across our driveway to increase outdoor living space and add security. I researched and spoke to a large number of fence companies in the metroplex. While 78 Fence was not the least expensive bid we received, but it was the most informative, communicative, and detailed. When planning a 35 foot power gate, it was not our intention to "bargain hunt" the project. We knew how important quality and safety would be on our fence and gate.

Needless to say, we picked the right guys! Mike, Robert, & Miguel (*and his amazing crew!) have earned my recommendation without hesitation. From start to finish, our experience with 78 Fence has been superb. Platinum customer service that is sincere with a product that speaks for itself. If you are in the market for a fence, gate, or pergola 78 Fence is the way to go. You will be so pleased with the process AND the product. When you call them, tell them Austin sent you. Honey will flow abundantly your way!!

Southwestern Chicken Soup

Some things are all day things. Some things are half day things. Some things are five minute things which taste like all day things! Yay for these! This is the kind of recipe that is filling, fabulous, and fast! Just like me! Ha ha, ok well maybe not appropriate but whatever. I made this for a friend-in-need last week and was so glad to get the phone call the next day that she was enjoying leftovers for lunch! Bonus! Double this easy recipe to share, freeze, or serve your son's soccer team on a random Thursday night.

Southwestern Chicken Soup

  • 12 oz jar Salsa Verde (*pick your fave)

  • 3 cups cooked Chicken cut up or shredded (1 Rotisserie or 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts)

  • 15oz Cannellini Beans, drained

  • 3 cups Chicken Broth

  • 1 teaspoon Ground Cumin

  • 2 Green Onions, chopped

  • Sour Cream for garnish

  • Grated Cheddar Cheese for garnish

  • Tortilla Chips for serving

Empty salsa into large saucepan or pot. Cook 2-4 minutes over medium heat then add chicken, beans, broth, and cumin. Bring to boil, lower heat to simmer and cook 10 minutes. Stir continuously. Top each bowl with green onions, sour cream, cheese, and chips. Enjoy!
